We had recently reported that Saif Ali Khan regrets being a part of the recently flopped film Humshakals. In fact he went on to say that the film was the biggest mistake in ever made in his career. This statement of his obviously did not go down well with most filmmakers.
David Dhawan compares a film to a baby, saying just because it failed to entertain the audience, doesn’t mean the film should be abandoned. He goes on to add, a film is not just the director’s responsibility. The actor is equally involved.
Shoojit Sircar makes a valid point. He says, a film’s success or failure is the result of the entire team’s effort – director and actor included.
According to Anand Rai, the actor should be majorly blamed as he is supposed to choose his scripts carefully and wisely, and not blame others.
Other filmmaker who spoke against Saif were, Reema Kagti, Umesh Shukla, Anees Bazmi, Bejoy Nambiar, Hansal Mehta among others.
Well, it’s a known fact that every actor knows what kind of film he/she is getting into. Just because someone’s role wasn’t appreciated post release, doesn’t mean he/she should disown the film and blame others.
Atleast when Bipasha disowned Humshakals, it was before the film released. So it gave her creditability and dignity to walk away from a film that was supposed to be made in a way she was told it would. Saif here, walked away after the horrible reviews and BO collections, which makes him seem like an insecure person. No one made you sign the film Saif. You read the script, acted in it, and watched it before it was released. Why say it after?
Only the other hand, if Sajid Khan can blame his ex girlfriend for Himmatwala not doing well, then why can’t Saif do the same. *Just saying* 😉
